Celebrate 2022 with Scottish fervor!

The Scots probably celebrate the New Year more than any other nation, so much so that they have their own name for it: Hogmanay!

Hogmanay is the Scottish celebration of New Year's Eve. But in Scotland, it can last much longer than New Year's Eve…until New Year's Day and even until January 2 which is a public holiday.

Knowing that whiskey is Scotland's national drink, Hogmanay is the perfect time to share a good whiskey with friends or family! Whether it's for a big party, by the fire or a fabulous feast, welcome 2022 as it should be around an exceptional "dram".

Hogmanay is much more than just a holiday, it comes with its customs and traditions passed down from generation to generation.

The "First-footing"

A custom associated with whisky, among other things!
The First-footer is the first person to cross the threshold of your house after midnight with gifts, such as coal, coins, shortbread and whiskey to wish each other a happy new year!


The fireball parade

For the New Year, at midnight, parade of fire in the streets of the city: this fire festival is indeed marked by parades of pipe-bands (bagpipes) in the light of torches. The participants, dressed in kilts, spin balls of fire to chase away evil spirits... A very popular spectacle.

Enjoy a glass of one of these wonders when the clock strikes midnight!
